#1

It’s World Book Day!

Go and read something.


#2

Yes mum.


#3

I’m reading this thread


#4

I saw a picture on facebook put up by a mum (friend of a friend), her kids were dressing up for world book day, one of them was dressed as The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas.


#5

gf’s just sent me pics of her nephews. eldest is harry potter (fucking sucker is just dressed in his school uniform with summat drawn on his head and a shit cape), youngest is a teenage mutant ninja turtle. he looks hilarious but i dont think theyre book characters


#6

I LIKE BIG BOOKS AND I CANNOT LIE


#7

Grim. My parents could never be arsed to help me make a costume so my mum told me to go as The Suitcase Kid i.e. wear normal clothes and frown a lot


#8

Just seen someone post a photo of his brother and sisters dressed as Batman, the cowgirl from Toy Story and a character from Inside Out.

At least Batman was on paper once I guess


#9

we never dressed up for it, I doubt mine would’ve helped much either


#10

seems to be the way it goes nowadays


#11

I heard that 1 in 5 people in the UK cannot name a single author.

There’s a smarmy article on Vice today where some twat challenges “hipsters” to name a single author. One of them says Charles Dickens, and it’s strongly implied that he doesn’t count.

The thing is, he’s really good, so he does count.


#12

My son is Batman today. Tried to steer him towards Paddington Bear. No dice.

World book day just means shelling out money on costumes for me.


#13

That’s because authors are so sexy that they’re all taken!


#14

how’s his batman voice


#15

I’m reading Them by Jon Ronson, I’ll dress as the owl shrine from the group ceremony at bohemian grove.


#16

I’ve read that, but I’ve never seen a photo of the shrine itself. It’s even more WickerManny than I imagined.


#17

#18

i’m reading the secret history of twin peaks, so i’ll dress as bobby briggs and wear my leather* jacket

*pleather


#19

books are so shit

I was about to request a ban for you, and the idea was to riff on your username, but it’s only now I’ve noticed that it’s not, as I’ve always thought, “Banman”.
